THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary (Tokyo, Japan) ________________________________________________________________________ For Immediate Release November 20, 1998
STATEMENT BY SPECIAL COUNSEL GREGORY CRAIG
The Rayburn Office Building, Washington, D.C.
November 19, 1998
1:40 PM EST
MR. CRAIG: There was virtually nothing new in the proceeding today. There was nothing new in the unfairness of the process as we saw in the party line vote to limit the President's Counsel to only 30 minutes in his questioning of Mr. Starr. The process remains bitterly partisan and, in our view, profoundly unfair to the President. And there was nothing new in Mr. Starr's two-hour presentation. He offered no new evidence, no new information, no new explanation for his tactics. The only new thing that he offered is finally and belatedly he cleared the President and the First Lady with respect to two of his investigations. This should have been done many, many months ago, if not years ago, but we're grateful to learn of the news today.
